I'm awaiting delivery of RaspBerry PI2 and have created an SD card with Noobs by extracting :
Version:1.4.0 Release date:2015-02-18
So top level SD card folder structure appears like :
Noobs apparently comes with software that I may not use. I just require ability to SSH (via putty) and upload files to PI using FTP. Also I will be installing java. So should I still use Noobs or use a custom installation ? I'm not too worried about wasted disk memory but I want to keep the 1GB of RAM as free as possible, so will some Noobs unused software waster RAM ?
Is there a more RaspBerry PI2 OS that I can use which just contains following :
Raspberry compatible UNIX SSH FTP Ethernet access
Or should I just go with current version of Noobs as extra software installed RAM memory is minimal unless I use it ?
